Ho ho ho! It’s that time of year again. Here’s JHK’s holiday classic: A Christmas Orphan.

11-year-old Jeff Greenaway hears his mom and dad argue one night after an office Christmas party. He infers from their garbled squabble that he is an orphan, found in a willow basket on the welcome mat outside their New York apartment. Thinking now that his parents are imposters, he steals away to Grand Central Station and buys a train ticket to Drakesville, Vermont, where he intends to start life all over again.

A Clown in the MoonlightSt Martin’s Press 1981
A marriage farce set on the campus of an artsy progressive Vermont college. Originally titled “Brain Damge: A Love Story” but the publisher made me change it. (They thought it evoked an unsavory image of retards in love.)  The few critics who reviewed it clobbered me for being “just another mouthy college prof in a bad marriage.”  Fact was, I’d never taught in a college or been married when I wrote the book, but I could see in hindsight what a tactical career error it was. Amusing if you can unearth a copy.
